Scraps & Fabric Prices Rising
Today I want to talk saving/using SCRAPS! Ok..I know, it's another one of my many resolutions this year....using up my scraps.
Everytime I start to throw some fabric scraps away, I think about the cost of my fabrics and the prices rising this year. Cotton prices have already risen, so we are already starting to see increases in the pricing structure of our fabrics. Fabrics that used to cost us $7-8 a yard are now priced at $9-10 a yard.
There's so many ways to use our scraps and lots of bloggers/quilters are joining in on the fun! I thought I'd share a few of the ideas for saving/using our scraps that I've recently seen.
Here's Bonnie's solution to saving/storing scraps. It's a long read, but one that will get you thinking.
